Interviews in UAE

What to expect

If you applied through one of our agents in UAE, you can choose to have a face-to-face interview with one of our academic staff, otherwise you can be interviewed by telephone or Skype. Students who apply without a representative to one of our Colleges will be interviewed by telephone or Skype.

For more information on our interview schedule, contact our representative nearest to you (see contact details above).

Offers at interview

Further education and undergraduate applications: If you are successful in the interview, you will receive an offer on the spot. If the interviewer cannot offer you a place on your first choice course, they will advise you on other suitable courses across UAL's six Colleges or recommend ways you can improve your work so that you can reapply at a later date.

Postgraduate applications: For some courses our interviewers can make offers on the spot; for other courses they will make a recommendation to the College you are applying to.
